Preparing for the storm

Plan ahead

  • Review your emergency plan with your family.
  • In case of evacuation, you and anyone you know with special needs should contact your local emergency management office.
  • Know your home’s vulnerability to storm surge, high winds and flooding.
  • Update the phone number and email address on your FPL account.
  • Before storm season begins, have your trees properly trimmed to minimize their impact on your home and neighborhood.

Before the storm hits

  • Pay attention to instructions from public officials and the media.
  • Gather important documents including insurance policies, health cards, list of medications, birth certificates, list of important phone numbers and your FPL account number - and put them in a waterproof container.
  • Prepare food, water and supplies. 
  • Secure and prepare your home.
